Its not fun anymore CENT MK5 Su-100

Postby wy456 » Tue 17 Jun 2014 22:07

I just had a few days break of playing Red dragon and emediately the first 2 games i played i had 30 - 40 Su-100 and Centurion mk.5 .

Ranked and regular games

The games went nice it was a little fund and then you get spammed by a Wilde horde of Centurion MK 5 and some Heavies and AA in the back.

This is just not fun anymore its about how to cover your high value units with cheap ones now? and everyone is doing it now that has got nothing to do with strategy anymore its not fun.

And i am heavily disappointed that there is no patch whatsoever taking care about this.

I don't think cheap crap like the Centurion has very good top armour, just buy one or two cheap cluster bombers. Job done.

It has two top armour.

If the solution was really that simple then centurions wouldn't consistently be an issue all the way from ALB.

Centurions even survive Fighting Falcons...


@OP, I can fully understand you
As this issue is a known one for half a year now, I dont think that Eugen cares anymore...

It's a good thing people never get AA. Also Cheap cluster bombers don't have large drop radiuses. And suiciding a 55 point plane on 15 point tanks doesn't seem worth it.

Centurions have been an issue since the ESL in Alb.
They were not used as common as they are now, but nevertheless they dominated since then.

Red Dragon is crap now anyways. Maps are depressing, games never even seem fun, line infantry is almost absent 98% of the time because everyone just uses masses of shock and spec ops. I can't even get a good tank duel in this game.

Have you even played RD? You're aware that cluster bombs are now half as effective, right?
